Infragistics' UI control suite now extends application development lifecycle support to requirements gathering and usability testing, rapid application development (RAD) tools integrating with Microsoft's Visual Studio (IDE), and support for emerging modern web and mobile development frameworks.
According to the Developer Insights Report by the Application Developers Alliance, 88% of the developers surveyed use more than one programming language, while 57% say staying current with new languages, frameworks, and tools is one of their biggest challenges. Using familiar UI controls and productivity tools like those found in Infragistics Ultimate can help smooth the transition between platforms, and help businesses keep costs down as their development teams are often tasked with supporting desktop applications and working on new web and mobile solution efforts.
